To My Teachers

To my teachers,

 

Thank you!

Thank all of you who taught me, encouraged me and graded me.

I came to college thinking I knew what I wanted.

You taught me what I needed.

Doors I once thought closed have burst open.

Ideas long forgotten have bloomed like myriad colors in a garden.

Webs of dreams are becoming lines on a page.

You taught me what I am, what I can do.

You took an old clay pot full of memories

And turned it into a wellspring of words.

How do I say thank you?

 

I share with others, the lessons you taught me

That I may honor you.

 

Pila Maya,

R J Papa Nyk Lindsoe
